    the standard form equation is y=mx+b m is the slope, and b is the y intercept (the y number at which x=0)

    Use point-slope form first.

    y-y1=m(x-x1)

    You already have the slope, so the only thing you need to find is the y intercept

    plug in your slope and plug in your point as (x1,y1) then just solve for y. :)
